Si. Pero PUNCH era mejor (tengo muchos volumenes encuadernados).
Tengo tambien un Lilliput con dibujos de Molina Campos.

I have some ten copies of Lilliput and six years of bound Punch and LOADS of single issues. Mostly fifties and sixties. Mel Calman once gave me many years, five or six, of issues of The sixties New Yorker.

Descubrí a Searle hace unas semanas nomas. Hay un blog con mucho material de él. Tiene algunas cosas geniales, y mucha influencia sobre la epoca Xerox de Disney.

Precisamente el Mat J. de mas arriba, ademas de ser un excelente dibujante, es el que organiza el blog de Searle.

There's a cartoonist in France very influenced by Searle in press magazine, can see his work at http://colonnier.org/
I like his work, it's really funny and charming.

True. Quite charming. I hope he'll shake off a bit the strong influence from Searle and finds his own way. He draws very well.
